Nestucca River and Three Rivers Fishing Report

Nestucca River - Pacific, OR

by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff

Spring Chinook fishing has been slow to fair on the Nestucca, depending on the day. Concentrating effort in the lower River will probably produce the best results. Bobber fishing bait, back bouncing, pulling divers and bait or plugs are all good techniques.

Spring Chinook fishing on Three Rivers has been slow. There are some fish being caught, but the action is sporadic. Anglers are reminded that “Anti-Snagging Gear Restrictions” (page 16 of the Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations) are in effect from May 1 to July 15, and from the Cedar Creek Hatchery deadline to the marker downstream of Gauldy Mtn. Road Bridge is youth fishing only (ages 17 and under) from June 1 to July 15.

Summer steelhead fishing has picked up a bit on the Nestucca and in Three Rivers. Fishing light gear, and targeting first and last light is often the key to success with these fish.

Trout season opened May 22, and there should be some nice cutthroat around. Remember the limit on streams and rivers is two per day over 8-inches.
